Respect the Boobies!

And I don't mean those stupid people out in the world!  Cancer is just a terrible, horrific, nasty thing that I hate as much as I love my sweet grandbabies.  It ravages beautiful, kind, loving people and I think it has to be destroyed.  It's affected way too many loved ones and friends of mine.  When I lived in Maine, the school that I worked at always participated in Relay for Life and working with people on that event was one of the most meaningful things I've ever been involved in.  This disease in whatever form it takes needs to be defeated and I walk in Relay for Life for those who can't.  Since I'm not involved in research, I leave that for those with the knowledge and brains to deal with, I participate when and where I can to bring attention to this thing I hate with a passion.

Saturated Canary has a beautiful free digi called Boobie Love and this is my take on it:



I've got to admit that with all the gorgeous Saturated Canary cards out there, I was a bit intimidated to put a card out there, but I just sucked it up and wanted to share my vision of this cute pixie.  I colored her with copice and added some Diamond Glaze to her eyes and lips, pink Stickles to her pink ribbon, and distressed ink around the edge.  The swirls are an old Sizzix die and the flowers are from Reflections and the ends are touched with of course, my Crystal Stickles.  Gotta blink while you're showing some love to the bobbies!  The gorgeous paper is from Making Memories Sabrina stack and the ribbon from Cloud 9.  I love the cut out Spellbinders and have been using them way too much lately!  Here she is close up:


Here is the inside.


I hope you enjoy this card and thanks for listening to me up on my soap box.  I hope everyone has a beautiful and healthy day!
